James Gunn Sneakily Used The Suicide Squad To Pay Tribute To Chris Pratt

As you can see from the picture, the Pratt in question is a fuzzy little rat who accompanied Cleo Cazo aka Ratcatcher 2 (Daniela Melchior) in the film. If you know your memes, you may have heard Chris Pratt called Crisp Ratt. If you don’t know your memes, you’ll never unhear that. Well, this tiny rodent is called Crisp Ratt. Gun tells the site: 

” … we had two primary rats. One was named Jaws and one was named Crisp Ratt. [Laughs] They were our two main rats, and they were sweethearts, and they played Sebastian for most of the movie. Crisp could do some things and Jaws could do some other things. Jaws was the more mellow one. Whenever you needed a rat to just sit on Daniela’s shoulder, or to be held by her, or whatever, that’s almost always Jaws. And when you needed a more crazy rat that was drinking water or running across the room, that would be Crisp Ratt.”

Crisp Ratt is a very good baby (the rodent, I mean) and one of the highlights of a very fun film. Knowing their name makes it even better. It also makes me wonder if Jaws was a nod to King Shark (voice of Sylvester Stallone, mo-cap by Steve Agee).
